The self-guided galleries on the first floor are open, giving people a chance to connect with Youngstown's past once again

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A link to Youngstown’s past reopened Friday during one of the city’s most interesting times ever.

The Tyler History Center is a celebration of heritage and history. Now the exhibits are once again open for viewing for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic started.

You have to wear a mask inside, practice social distancing and it’s recommended that you call ahead for a reservation. Maximum capacity is limited to see the exhibits.

The self-guided galleries on the first floor are open, giving people a chance to connect with Youngstown’s past.

It was the beginning of the center for sharing experiences with people again.

“The artifacts themselves are so important, to just be able to get that firsthand look at something,” Jessica Trickett said. “It’s not just about the artifacts, it’s about the stories and the people behind them, so it connects us.”

The Tyler History Center is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information, visit its website.
